Who we are…
The Farmers Insurance Group of Companies was founded in 1928 when Farmers Insurance Exchange, an automobile insurer, was formed. As customer demand for additional insurance services increased, the Fire Insurance Exchange and Truck Insurance Exchange were established for home and commercial insurance needs. Today, the Farmers Insurance Group of Companies is the country’s third-largest, and Washington’s second-largest, writer of both private and passenger automobile and homeowners insurance.
Farmers Insurance Group of Companies is based in Los Angeles, California and operates in 50 states across the country through the efforts of approximately 50,000 agents and 24,000 employees. Our agents, claims adjusters, underwriters and service center personnel, are responsible for servicing more than 10 million households with more than 20 million individual policies.
What we believe…
Since our founding in 1928, we have been committed to improving the communities where our customers, agents, and employees live and work. Investing in our communities is nothing new to Farmers. We have been proud active partners in bettering the lives of our neighbors across the country for many decades.
Farmers continues to invest considerable resources in programs that improve safety, enhance educational opportunity, and increase civic participation in communities across America. In addition to our institutional support for these causes, we are undeniably proud of the thousands of Farmers agents and employees who generously contribute thousands of dollars and hours of volunteer time to organizations in their neighborhoods. In 2011 alone, more than 15,000 Farmers people donated more than 750,000 volunteer hours and raised more than $1.5 million for worthy causes, above and beyond Farmers corporate giving of $2.1 million. In 2009, Farmers agents and district managers raised $4.7 million in a single day to help March of Dimes fight premature births.
Farmers is also a Military friendly employer who values the talents and skills Veterans acquire while servicing our country.
